VeganMoFo and The Veggie Grill
I've posted about The Veggie Grill in the past. When the place first opened I was very apprehensive. But, it has certainly grown on me over the last year. Since the beginning, the food has been great. I just wasn't sure about the business model: Good for you Fast Food.
I made the trek to Irvine today, to cash in on my "free birthday entree" they sent to me in the mail. The place was PACKED! Almost every table was full and there was a line to place your order. Normally, that would be a bad thing...but I was so stoked to see so many people opting for a cruelty free lunch, when there was a pizza joint, an ice-cream shop and many other omni choices in the University Town Center within steps.
I ordered the "Carne Asada" sandwich with Sweet Potato fries. Actually I ordered 2. One for my free lunch, and another to bring home for dinner later. Let me tell you...this seitan is AMAZING. Even heated up several hours later...DELISH. The chipotle mayo is the perfect finishing touch to this delicious sandwich.
If you live anywhere near one of these "fast food" establishments...I suggest you stop in for a bite. You won't be dissapointed.
